Tempting though it may be, if you get an email in your inbox which promises a photo of naked people spelling out “Happy New Year” with their bodies, don’t open it.

Not, mind you, that the picture isn’t there – it is ( although one is given to wonder given the season just where they were when they pulled this stunt).


No, the reason to not open it is because in addition to naked people posing as letters of the alphabet (how did they accomplish the ‘P’?..and Aunty doesn’t even want to think about the “Y” and the “W”), there is a nice big fat juicy worm in that email.

The worm, dubbed “Wurmark-D” (or “W32/Wurmark-D”) by anti-virus company Sophos, is one of those lovelies which both defeats security systems on the host computer, and scours the system for email addresses, to which it then mails itself out.

Even though the New Year has already been rung in (with clothing, thank you very much) a spokesperson at Sophos says that many users are just now returning from extended holiday, and the worm may take advantage of the jam-packed state of their inbox coupled with their propensity to clean that inbox out with less than full caution.

You have been warned. If you need a fix of naked people, your inbox is not the place to find it.
